Wonderful, clean, very close to town (Isle), spacious, fantastic beach, two fish piers, and a very nice boat landing. This place is perfect for a quick get away!

This is a great little park, which is particularly pretty in the fall! We aren't campers, but if we were, we'd love it here!

Almost no complaints!! Friendly DNR Staff. Terribly high wood prices, and the wood had trouble burning.

This was our first visit to Father Hennepin State Park, Wow, what a great camping area. The two campgrounds are quite different in character, the Lakeview Campground is very popular, open, airy and presents a wonderful view of the lake; the Maple Grove Campground is more "woodsy" with trails that wind through the trees and finally lead to the lake....

Our family has used this park for weddings, reunions and other events for years. This was my first trip to the park and I was really impressed. We used a lake front pavilion that was tucked in the woods for our reunion. Even though the lake has a lot of boat and jet ski traffic we couldn't hear them at... More

We enjoyed the trails and beaches at Father Hennepin! A great family destination. There are a few fishing docks, too.

Truly one of the most beautiful parks in MN. I came here this summer with my wife to do some hiking. The hike starts along Lake Mille Lacs with some amazing views. It was a perfect sunny day with a nice warm breeze coming off the lake. The actual views of the lake are stunning, much like an inland sea... More

We had planned to camp at Scenic state park on our back back to Canada from Minneapolis. Our van broke down on the way, and we would have arrived to late after all the repairs were said and done. We literally looked up state parks we could get to by 10pm and this is where we landed. Are we ever... More

Wow, A great place to stay instead of Hunter Winfields. You don't get screwed on the Price and the Park Rangers are very friendly. It is a jewel in the crown of Mille Lacs.
